Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a mission to drive innovation to solve world challenges. Solve is a marketplace for social impact innovation. Through open innovation Challenges, Solve finds incredible tech-based social entrepreneurs all around the world. Solve then brings together MIT’s innovation ecosystem and a community of supporters to fund and support these entrepreneurs to help them drive lasting, transformational impact.  

Solve was born out of the Office of the President of MIT in 2015, a natural offshoot of MIT’s mission to advance knowledge in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.

Thanks to its supporters, Solve has catalyzed over $60 million in commitments for Solver teams and social entrepreneurs. Together, we are solving the world’s most pressing problems.
